Sue Denim died of old age having caught 38 different kinds of fish (not 38 fishes.  38 types) - not a single one of which was an angelfish.

This challenge seemed so easy when I read the instructions.

Lol Metro, I don't even remember that movie but I do remember that reference. I'm just popping in to clarify that my Simself threw her party after collecting all of the items (Yes the fossil and angelfish included) as that was how I read the rules. :) Sorry about your score @MarianT :( You'll probably destroy me at the next challenge, along with everyone else, I never do retail, I'm still not sure what the best approach is, oh well, I'll just bumble along I guess! Realm Of Magic has not been helping me practice either, lol. (Shirks off more practice and buzzes off to play more Realm Of Magic).

Well I wasn't going to do any tournament challenges this year so I could concentrate on my RDC, but it's the forum birthday party and I couldn't resist.

I finished on Tuesday Wk 1 at 1.13am for a score of 2473.  My simself is in the gallery but she thinks she is wearing cc, even though she isn't.

It's always nice to see you participate, HelenP. You're one of the old-timers and go back to the early Sims 3 challenges. Great score in this one.

I just wanna say how relieving it is to see everyone else struggling with the ** fish. My Sim literally caught e v e r y f i s h, did the aspiration, and maxxed out before she found it.

Go ahead and put me down as DNF. 

I was not able to find the tiny t rex or the angelfish.

Looking forward to the honey challenge. :)

I feel like I just spotted Bigfoot by putting you on the leaderboard, Trip. Does not happen too often. ;) Thanks for participating.

Oh my gosh! I thought I had recorded my time for this. So, my simself finished week 2 Weds., at 1:51 pm. For 14,751 minutes. I finally found that hilariously tiny t-rex arms fossil. Sheesh!

I thought the Angelfish was getting to torpedo my battleship like so many others, but I finally nabbed one and threw the party. Finish time - Week 2, Monday 10:13 AM. -- 11,653 minutes.

It's so odd that the angelfish stymied so many players. It's generally pretty easy to get.

If you did not post on the last Sunday I'd be asking what was wrong with you! Lol. ;) Great score as always, Lena.

I'm playing the Power of Ten challenge and a child just went fishing. Angelfish second one. Every other game it seems so easy.

Just finished!  Second week, Monday at 5:32 AM.  11372 minutes per LenaJ's spreadsheet.

Getting a party done was harder than I expected.  The T-Rex arms was as random as I expected (spent a couple days doing basically just that, no luck, and then two in a row).  Thanks so much for this great challenge!

Oh, and my simself is in the gallery too - named Titania Dioxide, wearing purple (though the party outfit is a denim jacket, red shirt, and long skirt).

The t-rex arm was killing me, took almost 3 full days. I probably wasn't searching the most efficiently, but still. XP

Anyway, I finished Week 1 Thursday at 4:34pm, for a score of 6274.

Didn't upload my Simself to the gallery though, I've noticed my computer makes unfortunate noises when I try to upload things, and it was already pretty warm from Sims lol.

Hopefully its not too late! Finished on Wednesday of Week 2 for a score of 14803. The angelfish gave me some trouble. Had fun getting acquainted with my neighbors and neighborhood!

I always aim to do it earlier though. But then there is always that thing called life that interfears ;)

This event is now closed.

Well, that's it, everyone. The big anniversary is all over. It's was lots of fun. I know parts of it (I'm looking at you, Angelfish!) were maddening and caused more than a handful of DNFs, but oh well. We'll chaulk this one up to a little more RNG than is typical in Tournament events.

30 total participants! That makes me happy. A big round of applause to all -- especially Rainbow Dash who ended up on top. Everyone is now free to discuss strategy.
